Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6451 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Maytag Model # LAT9635AAE

My washing machine started to trip the circuit breaker. Then one night it tripped it and the basement smelled of burned rubber and the machine wouldn't spin the load fast. I replaced both belts and started a load of wash. The wash cycle worked fine, but when it got to the spin cycle, it spun very slowly. The pump belt is spinning, but the drive pulley is only moving at a very slow rate. I'm sure that's why I smelled burned rubber before. Since this is not a belt problem, is this a motor problem? Is this worth repairing?

Check to see if it is a pump problem or a transmission problem. First remove both belts see if all the pullys turn freely. if the pump has a tight feel check inside pump for a item jammed in it.look for transmission oil on floor or belts if oil is present transmmision if probably going.ALSO check at the top of the tubs for anything stuk in between tubs.

Washer keeps blowing fuses

Do you mean the houses circuit breaker? If so, WHEN in the cycle does it blow the circuit breaker? WHEN it trips will tell you what to look at. I.E. If the circuit breaker trips during the fill cycle then it would be the walter inlet valve or the timer in the control panel; if it trips as soon as it is in the agitator cycle - then the motor or transmission; if it trips in the spin cycle - then the drain pump or transmission or control panel.

My maytag performa washing machine blows fuses/trips breakers

there must be a shorted wire or a burn capacitor. You will have to trace the wiring to see if there is any broke or loose wires or solder joints or burn marks on the circuit boards. You can also test relays with an ohmmeter or multi-meter to make sure there is resistance.

Electrical Burning smell when agitating, trips breaker.

Send your complete model number, just to make sure we are working on same washer.
First check the lid latch switch by unplugging washer first and remove the font panel. Look up to where the switch is mounted. I am not positive that is your [problem but know there has been many problem with that switch. It will begin to melt ad cause the power to motor to be lost in a bad connection.

MAH3000AWW Trips 20Amp Breaker at rinse cycle

The motor is known to have bad windings. Do a search for "Neptune Washer will not start" Also just inside the control panel where the start/stop sw is should be a paper folded with the diagnostics test and schematic. It is tucked under the pressure sw attached to the back. If not there then search "Maytag Neptune motor phase test" There is also a Service Manual FREE at Goetlieh's site.

Washer trips circuit breaker

Is washer relatively new? Check circuit breaker for proper size (20 AMPS). Washer must also be on its own circuit. It appears that when the motor starts up it is causing a spike in current (as with any motor), so the breaker is either undersized (Note that if breaker is undersized and you up it to the next size you would also need to replace the wire with the next size up which would be 12/2 with ground), or if you have had your washer a while which I believe is your case the circuit breaker is weakening and is tripping on the current spike. Try swapping out your circuit breaker with a new one and try running the washer again.
